Let it never be said that WoTC never printed a Human Merfolk, yes now you have one.

Kidding aside this guy is decent. He is a solid 1/4 body, most blue creatures tend to be small in toughness and you never get to use them to block. This guy blocks centaurs then doubles the counters on your creatures. Heck, he even double counters on himself if he acquired any.

My only gripe is I wish he were a wizard. He has two species classes Human Merfolk but they couldn't add Wizard to him as well? I guess they ran out of room on his text line. Its a shame he is human, being Merfolk would've been just fine.

Because Gilder Bairn can't be your commander.

Unless I'm mistaken, you could Liquimetal Coating a planeswalker into an artifact to make it targetable by Vorel?

If you hit six mana with Vorel, and a Liquimetal Coating in play then you could play and instantly use Ral Zarek's -7, or any other planeswalker.

If you have out Gilder Bairn and Experiment Kraj, and both Vorel and Gilder Bairn have +1/+1 counters, it gets ridiculous. Tap Kraj to double the counters on something, untap Kraj to double the counters on something again, et cetera.

"And thus, the little bairn became their king, and they called him 'Vorel'."

Q. How did Vorel of the Hull Clade get to be so funny?

A. He became a Humerfolk.

Here is what makes Vorel better than gilder barin. HE TAPS. With the barin, you have to either attack, and have your barin get killed, or have another way to tap him. However, those other ways eat up card slots. Vorel does not need those other cards. A combo with him needs two cards rather than three. Therefore, it is more consistent. Yes, you cannot go infinate with Vorel as easily, but I would rather a consistent, yet reasonable combo to a hit or miss, powerful one. Also, being out of bolt range helps alot.
